“Let me,” he says, voice low, his hand running up my thigh.
“You hate me,” I whisper, knees trembling.
He smiles against my throat. “I don’t need to love you for this, Riley. Let me.”

Love and hate are merely two sides of the same coin. And I hate Riley Larson.
She's responsible for my little brother's death. She played us both, all those years ago. And she drove him to the e

I have read like 50 pages or so and then from a review I read, I learnt that there is going to be an MFM scene and I lost my enthusiasm to continue the book. A man who shares his woman is no man for me; I cannot see him as my hero in a romance novel.

Well that was quite possibly the darkest and dirtiest book I’ve ever read. I know this is billed as a dark romance, but there’s dark and then there’s DARK. The writing itself is actually great, so it jumped from one to five stars repeatedly throughout the story for me, but ultimately it was just not what I was hoping for. For one thing, there’s no actual “romance.” This is a guy, Caden, who fell in love with his brother’s girlfriend and can’t seem to stay away from her even though he now hates a ...more

Wow! My first experience with this author and even though I was somewhat confused at first, I quickly caught on and was speechless! Secrets and lies are told and finally revealed! A slow burn but oh so good! Devoured it!! Awesome book!!
Caden blames Riley for his brother's death. Caden's dad has leverage on Riley, which he uses to keep her quiet about what really happened. Caden and his friend Benji want to get revenge. Their reasons for wanting revenge are dumb. They act like she was actively involved in Jack's death when in reality she was loosely involved.

Riley let Caden treat her like shit, so his dad wouldn't expose the info he had. The dad was creepy. Based on how she acted, I figured he had something good on her, but I

If a female has only male friends=red flag. I’m so over authors creating female characters who have every Tom,Dick and Harry ‘falling for them’ when said female characters are shitty. I’m sick of shit for brains male characters. He seems so juvenile. It’s so dramatic. There’s no real feelings so the notion that the author is trying to push the idea of ‘betrayal’ and angst falls flat. This is soooo long winded with no substance. Why did they feel like they ‘connected?’ What entwines them? Lite

An INTENSE Page Turner!
Well written with an easy flowing storyline with excitement at every turn that kept me captivated throughout this amazing suspense filled read. An endless flow of twists and turns that kept me needing to turn the pages. A myriad of emotions and amazing hot chemistry. I enjoyed this read and gladly recommend.

The author clearly protrayed the hateful nature of some of the characters in this book. The anger, hate and jealousy jumped off the pages as each scene was read. The mystery surrounding the events that led to their strained interactions is revealed slowly over most of the book. The author kept the suspense going while creating a longing for them to be free of the evil in their lives and possibly for them to be together but only if they can let go of the past. Great storytelling

On this green earth did I just read? Holy twists and turns, Batman!
The backstory behind Caden and Riley, the addition of Benji, her background with the family.
So many bumps on their rollercoaster ride, and I am here for it!
I cannot wait to read Benji’s story.
This is a new author for me, but I think she’ll be a favorite in no time at all!

What a super read this was it is the first book in the series and I picked it up thinking I would read for ten minutes before bed but I quickly became hooked and could not put it down. This is a good dark read full of twist and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat I would definitely recommend it

I was really looking forward to reading this book especially after reading the other reviews of how dark it was. I was extremely disappointed. I felt that some chapters could have been cut. The ending felt rushed and a bit unrealistic.

This is the first book I have read by this author and will not be the last. I enjoy a really good dark romance story and this one will take you to that line that you may think you have and even possibly push it out a little further. In this book we have anger, grief, revenge, hatred, blame and just about anything else that can come from a brother who has lost his younger brother and blames his brother's girlfriend for the whole ordeal. If that isn't enough there is an attraction between Caden an ...more

Wow. This was one strong and dark read. Interesting story. It was my first book from this author and it pulls you in right from the start. I recommend this book. Will read more.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Full of angst and drama with lots of push/ pull that finally came to a head with a great HEA.

I voluntarily read an advanced copy.

3.5 Vengeful Stars

As a contender for my DE group's BOTM, I knew from the blurb I had to read this one. The author is new to me (and I believe a new dark author altogether), but she managed to tell a story that was equal parts heartbreaking and delicious. There were a few issues (I will get into later), but altoget

An Emotional Ride

I had been waiting for this book for awhile and overall, I can say I’m satisfied with it. Definitely a great debut from KV Rose and I’m super excited to read more about Benji and learn more about his story.

There are a lot of intense twists and turns in Caden and Riley’s story, some fueled by anger and grief, others lust. There are a lot of moving parts in Riley’s life that she has to keep going, few of which Caden is privy to, and even then, he doesn’t have the whole story. Onc

Dark and intense romance

**may contain spoilers**

Let me: New Adult Dark Romamces will fill you with all the dark and dirty things a bully romance should. I enjoyed the story of Caden and Riley, two souls meant for one another but torn apart by those who were meant to protect them. I will admit Benji was probably my favoirte part of the story. I was slightly rooting for him near the end. It would have been great to see the side kick get the girl. Maybe the next book will give Benji the HEA he dese

This was my first book by K.V. Rose but it definitely won't be the last. As a huge fan of dark romance, I am always on the lookout for new authors in the genre. This book didn't disappoint. First of all, the writing was superb! I enjoyed the plot and the slowly unfolding mystery. Books that jump between past and present are hit or miss for me but it worked in this case. I liked loved both main characters (even when I didn't like them). I really really enjoyed Benji and can't wait for his book! A ...more

First time reading Dark Romance and phew. What a ride. This is obviously not for everyone as it's quite explicit and is...well...dark. I'm not easily triggered by any of the themes that we see in the novel, I can understand it would make some people uncomfortable.
Nonetheless, I had an amazing time reading it and kudos to dearest KV Rose for this beautifully twisted book!!

Great beginner

This is a new author to me as well as the rest of the world. As far as first books go, she's off to a great start and I can't wait for Benji's book.
